-Kuun-Lan is divided into several modules, color and letter-coded for simplicity. In the middle of all this is the connecting spine, the ‘Highway’ since it uses travel cars to traverse between modules. Every module is completely self-contained, and can be closed off in a crisis.
Front facing modules (3) (White)
Command, Communications, and Operations pods. These three pods at the front facing of the vehicle are where the bridge, communications antenna, and rudimentary hanger are positioned. In front of all of these is the massive reverse-thrust package, which slows the craft.
Hanger Module (H) (Green)
The hanger module is provided for the construction of larger vessels, up to frigate size. Construction of larger capital craft takes place by welding together frigate components to form the larger ship, which is finished with exterior construction vehicles.
Habitat Module (B) (Blue)
The habitat module is the city-section of the Kuun-Lan. It’s interior is similar to the Centraal Baheer mentioned above. Though space is at a premium, Kuun-Lan’s population has implemented space-conserving ways. Small gardens are spaced intermittently through the module's maze-like interior.
Refinery Module (R) (Yellow)
Designed for resource processing and refinement of materials. Connections run from this module to the hanger module by exterior piping. There are two slots for resourcers to dock.
Greenhouse (G) (Purple)
The greenhouse is a rotating section between the forward and aft modules. It spins to provide gravity for the plants there, since the Taiidan have the belief that things don’t grow well in the artificial gravity of the modules.
Research Pod (E) (Teal)
The Research pod was specially fitted to only a select few of the Explorers. Kuun-Lan was one of them, and as an experimental component it has the most safeguards. It can be instantly and completely sealed from the rest of the ship if triggered by the occupants. It also comes with a self-destruction capability.
Storage module (S)(Orange)
Designed to store anything from resources collected to oxygen and other precious gasses. It is triple-armored to prevent any breaches.
Emergency Module (X) (Red)
The Emergency Power module stores backup reactors in the event the main reactor fails. The Emergency Module was also designed to detach and connect to other modules to serve as a back-up and survival component if dire needs demanded it.
Drive Module (D) (Brown)
The Kuun-Lan’s massive drive block. It too, was assembled in modular components and constructed… but this by far was the longest set of components to build from the original mothership. The drives are more powerful than the ones built into the original mothership, as the blocks themselves were based off of captured Kushan technologies (and Turanic, to some extent). The Drive module itself is three modules together, with a fourth serving as a cruising motor.
Each of the three drive modules has it’s own hyperspace core, tripling the range of Kuun-Lan over other vessels. This means while it doesn’t go as far as the far-jumper (Mothership’s core), it can go significantly further than most other ships and can out-range most pursuers.
